ABOUT THE COMPANY
From sustainable energy systems to self-driving cars, the innovations of the future will all rely on code.
With so much software to write, developers need a better way to access, understand, and collaborate on code one that will finally free them from archaic software development tools and processes.
At Sourcegraph, we are building a better, smarter foundation for software development.
One that will enable developers (and the companies that rely on them) to more quickly turn great ideas into groundbreaking technology.
Effectively, we want to bring the future sooner.
We have a public description of what we are building for developers and why it matters: https://sourcegraph.com/plan.
ABOUT THE TEAM
Our small team consists of talented, mature, collaborative, driven individuals who are attracted to the massive problem we are tackling.
We work in an open environment that treats people in a first-class manner and provides them with ownership, responsibility, and autonomy.
